A loaded question, as it turns out. ;)

Try tinkering with the in-game graphics settings (looks like a screen resolution issue). Even if everything's already set the way it should be, sometimes just pulling up the menu can "nudge" the computer into proper settings.

Turn off anti-aliasing in your graphics card. I had the same problem and that's what I did to fix it.

BTW, the Zone didn't remove the XWA and XvT rooms, they just moved them. The new url is http://zone.msn.com/directplay/default.asp?TAd=1.

I had the same problems with the fonts so here are the settings recommended in Lucasarts for Nvidia FX series.

The settings on your card should be:
- Antialiasing=8X
- Anisotropic=8X
- Force MipMaps=Trilinear
- Conformant Texture Clamp=On
- Extension Limit=Off

The text in Hud should be readable after this.

This may sound like a dumb question, but I am no computer genius. Are you talking about some kind of settings in the game menu, or is this something that has to be done in windows somehow?

Talk about a "zombie" thread...last post to this before you was shy of 3.5 years ago. They're talking mostly of video card settings (by calling up a menu from the driver's system tray icon), but the HUD text problem has been well-documented, and usually requires a replacement font.dat file. You'll find a few of them on LucasFiles.
